If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you might have noticed this last weekend that I opened an online shop. I wanted this to be a place where I can sell original and unique designs that are made to order for customers and supporters that don’t necessarily need the graphic design services that I offer.
I have so many supporters and people rooting for me, I just appreciate them so much and wanted to give them a way to be involved in my business too!
In this post, I wanted to answer any questions you may have about this new shop.
WHAT IS MADE TO ORDER/PRINT ON DEMAND?
It’s an amazing way to do business, that’s what! Basically, I have zero inventory. I send in my designs on the products I want to create, and the manufacturer does all the work making sure it looks amazing and gets where it’s supposed to be.
If you’ve never heard of print on demand, I highly recommend looking into it as a way to do business!
WHAT DO YOU SELL IN THIS SHOP?
Feel free to take a look for yourself! Right now I’m selling products such as clothing, accessories, and some house-wears like mugs and art prints. I’m planning on selling some digital downloads, ebooks, guides, or other things that would both help small business owners/entrepreneurs/bloggers/coaches/etc. as well as further automate my business.
If you have any suggestions of what you’d like to see in my shop, feel free to shoot me an email or DM me on social media!
CAN WE GET CUSTOMIZED DESIGNS?
I’d love to work on custom designs. If you see a product you like and want your own spin on things, shoot me an email and I’ll work with you directly to create something amazing.
Also, the bar necklace is customizable right from the product screen. It makes a great present for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and Mother’s Day and it comes in virtually every color!
WAS IT DIFFICULT TO OPEN A SHOP?
Not at all!
If you’re a small business owner and thinking about opening a shop online, WordPress and WooCommerce make it super simple and amazingly easy to manage. Looking to open your ecommerce business? Let me know!
ARE YOU STILL GOING TO SELL ON REDBUBBLE?
For anyone who doesn’t know, I also sell stickers and various items through RedBubble.com. I will still be selling what I have currently on RedBubble, and there are some products on there that this new manufacturer doesn’t make. So, yes, I will. Be sure to check that out every once in a while in case there are item-specific designs, and be sure to follow my social media accounts to stay updated!
You will likely see some cross-over with sticker designs and some other things between my personal shop and RedBubble, so whichever platform you prefer to utilize, that’s awesome! As an artist, I want to thank you guys soooo much for supporting everything I do!
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?
I know it’s not a huge deal, but I hope this turns into a fun adventure and a way for me to get to know a larger audience. If you have any questions about how or why I opened my shop, feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
